Lagerboy (1910) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 23, 2013
500 ml bottle. Mostly clear amber orange, small lasting creamy off-white head. Fruity malty aroma. Moderate bready malt and musty earthy hop taste, some caramel and citrus. Soft carbonation, light bodied, lightly hopped. Flat light bitter finish. A slightly less boring sessionable English bitter. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

50 cl bottle. Poured copper in color with a thick white head. Light citrusy, malty aroma. Flavor has malt, grass, biscuits. Some harshness in the light bitter finish. Light bodied, basic bitter.

liinis (1767) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 11, 2013
"developed from--" I would say its watered version from their "champion pale ale". Too light. too pale too little flavour.

viktorvee (510) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2013
Light bitter, not buckets of flavour, quite bland in fact. I’d give this a miss.

Holmen1 (4747) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 18, 2013
Flaske kjøpt på Berentsen ølutsalg: nærmest som en lettøl for dd med rbhd, men her er det mye smak - og god smak! Fin bitterhet og en maltkropp som er sensuell, ravgylden og fyldig. Adnams har ikke spart på amber malt. Meget lettdrikkelig. Et eksempel til etterfølgelse for norske bryggerier, lav alkoholprosent men høy drikkeglede.

olio (9210) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 26, 2013
50 cl bottle.
Originally rated on 20110328.
Pours golden color with a small head. Aroma of grass and malts, some mild fruits too. Flavor is the same with some disturbing metallic notes, quite straightforward.

Grumbo (1223) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2013
Bottle from a local supermarket. A beer I’ve had a number of times before, but first rating. For a 3.4% beer, it’s pretty good. A nice golden colour, with a fruity aroma and to me a slight hint of honey. Good overall, refreshing beer.

laiti (8034) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 2, 2013
50 cl bottle @ Scandic hotel’s Sauna, Tampere. Rated on 31.12.2010
Aroma is somewhat fruity with hops and some hay. Flavour has fruits, some gooseberry bush, toffee, biscuits and hints of hay. Quite nice and fruity for this ABV.

dogbomb (1151) - ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2012
Bottle. Slight haze on this orange beer with a finger of white head. Honey, tangerine and malt nuttiness on the nose. Caramel sweetness with a little orange and grass spicy hoppiness. Easy, smooth quaffing ale. Not one to write home about. Not one to spit out.

reebtogi (5593) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 5, 2012
500ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a finger and a half of white head that settles to leave some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild caramel and grass. Taste is a light caramel malty sweetness with a grassy hop bitterness. A pretty decent bitter style ale that is drinkable but nothing special.
